Intergas is the leading supplier in The Netherlands for high-efficiency boilers and hybrid heat pumps. The innovative company is at the forefront of the heating energy transition with its hybrid and heat pump solutions. Their Product Category Manager will drive the product development and roadmap, go-to-market strategy, pricing, and other strategic decisions.

About Intergas

Intergas is the leading supplier in The Netherlands thanks to its high-efficiency boilers and hybrid heat pumps, and are the driving force behind technological innovations in the sector. Its smart solutions lead the heating energy transition to help homeowners and installers achieve more sustainable, cost-effective heating.

Intergas develops its products entirely in-house, from hardware and software to electronics, and has scored best in many tests for the past decade. That’s why half of all Dutch boilers are manufactured by Intergas and its new hybrid models are considered the most compact, cost-effective, and sensible solution for existing buildings.

Since 2019, Intergas has been part of Rheem, a strong international cooling and heating systems organization annual sales of around six billion euros and operations in more than fifty countries. To support its European growth strategy, Rheem acquired DEJONG in 2022. With the addition of this world-leading manufacturer of stainless-steel hot water tanks and acquisition of Germany’s MHG Heiztechnik in 2023, Rheem has built a significant foundation for its leading role in Europe’s energy transition.

Ready for the future of HVAC
The European HVAC industry is rapidly evolving. The energy transition and resulting European and national regulations pose both a challenge and an opportunity for an innovative player like Intergas. Competition is growing, and customers increasingly need sustainable, and cost-effective solutions. As a European industry leader, Intergas strives to maintain its reputation for quality while setting the organization up for future success. Their structural changes have led to the creation of a new Product Category Management department to meet changing customer demands and accelerate the speed-to-market of its innovations while reducing costs.

Vacancy: Product Category Manager

As part of the new Product Category Management department, the Product Category Manager (PCM) for Boilers is the end-to-end leader. They are responsible for the lifecycle of all boiler products within the Intergas product portfolio. As the internal and external thought leader, they lead innovation in boilers with competitive and customer insights, set the go-to-market and pricing strategy, track product success and manage resources, and ensure continuous improvement across the product roadmap. This includes portfolio decisions, product launches, cost and price optimization, compliance, and meeting sustainability demands in the market. Within the category of gas-fired boilers, the PCM also leads strategic insights into the decarbonization of heating, including green gas, hydrogen gas, and developing smart, hybrid, all-in-one boilers.

The Product Category Manager will become the ‘voice’ of Intergas customers to the whole organization. They define the scope, product vision, target audience, and the problems a product should solve. Focusing the category strategy and decisions leads to greater speed-to-market, reduced costs, a more aligned vision, transparency, and increased collaboration between Innovation, Engineering, and the Product Management organization.

“We are one of the European leaders in the fast-changing HVAC sector. Intergas’ strength in innovation remains critical. Speed-to-market and efficiency are becoming increasingly important, and product category management will be key to achieving those feats,” – Arno La Haye, Managing Director of Intergas

The Product Category Manager for Boilers works closely with Hybrid and Digital PCMs and manages the Product Delivery Managers to implement projects for their category. They also build and maintain excellent collaborations with Innovation and Engineering teams on product development and continuous improvement of the existing boiler portfolio. They’ll also provide feedback to the PCM Hybrids on their portfolio. The PCM sets priorities for the countries’ sales organization based on the boiler product roadmap and strategy, and provides the customers’ voice into data and commercial insights from the local product management teams to make data-driven decisions.

This is an exciting opportunity for an experienced Product Manager or Designer with a strategic mindset. An excellent stakeholder manager, they speak the language of the different parts of the organization and bring them together in seamless and transparent collaboration. Their credibility and thought leadership on boilers make them pivotal for Intergas’ ability to respond quickly to market changes and secure the company’s leading position in the industry.
